Brave Dave's Idiotic Bush Question [David Gregory Gets Smacked Down Alert]
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | 24 May 07 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 05/25/2007 7:01:48 AM PDT by seanmerc

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Let's go to the president's press conference. The first question I want to play for you is from David Gregory, who I have a new nickname for: Brave Dave. Here is the question from David Gregory. It's about Iraq, that happened mere moments ago at a Rose Garden press conference.

GREGORY: Mr. President, after the -- mistakes that have been made in this war, when you do as you did yesterday, when you raised two-year-old intelligence talking about the threat posed by Al-Qaeda, it's met with increasing skepticism. The majority in the public, growing number of Republicans appear not to trust you any longer to be able to carry out this policy successfully. Can you explain why you believe you're still a credible messenger on the war?

RUSH: Well, we have Brave Dave, Brave Dave Gregory, a man who supports the troops as much as he supported Don Imus. Imus helped make him a star. When Imus got in trouble, there was Gregory running for the hills. Now, we talked about this yesterday. This business that the two-year-old intelligence dump that the president referenced yesterday is received by the American people with skepticism is absurd. It's received with skepticism by people like David Gregory in the media. Here's the president's answer to the question.

THE PRESIDENT: I'm credible because I read the intelligence, David, and make it abundantly clear, in plain terms that if we let up, we'll be attacked. And I firmly believe that . You know, look, this has been a long, difficult experience for the American people. I can assure you, Al-Qaeda, who would like to attack us again, have got plenty of patience and persistence. And the question is, will we? Yeah, I talked about intelligence yesterday. I wanted to make sure the intelligence I laid out was credible, so we took our time. Somebody said, "Well, he's trying to politicize the thing." If I was trying to politicize it, I'd have dropped it out before the 2006 elections. I believe I have an obligation to tell the truth to the American people as to the nature of the enemy. And it's unpleasant for some. I fully recognize that after 9/11, the calm here at home, relatively speaking, you know, caused some to say, "Well, maybe we're not at war." I know that's a comfortable position to be in. But that's not the truth.

RUSH: We talked about this yesterday, too. I'm still stunned that more people -- I can understand the media. The media, by virtue of the number of questions they asked on Iraq today, is still interested in forcing the president's surrender and defeat. They just want to blow this up prior to the 2008 elections. We talked yesterday about the fact that the people after World War II, our generation, the baby boom generation today, said, "How could the German people have let that happen? What went on?" You could ask the same question of what's going on today in America. How could the American people not understand what's going on? It's not as though 9/11 didn't happen. It did, and you've got Ahmadinejad, who today again has threatened Israel, threatened to wipe them off the map. He's done this frequently.

Bin Laden, Ahmadinejad, al-Zawahiri, it matters not who is on the enemies list. They're telling us plain as day what they're going to do. We've got intelligence here that backs it up, and people in the Drive-By Media just don't want to believe it. It's stunning. You know my theory on this. We know the media is who they are. But in this country, why are so many of the American people -- I'm not sure what the percentage is -- why are they so seemingly removed from this? The answer is, we've got so much prosperity; we have so much affluence that people don't have pay attention to this if they don't want to. It's tough to pay attention. You pay attention to it and act like something's wrong, it requires you to take action or be vigilant or what have you, and some people just don't want to think of it as themselves or their neighborhoods or their country or various cities being threatened on a daily basis. I've always thought it's going to take a couple more attacks to wake everybody up. The president continued, by the way, the answer to David Gregory with this.

THE PRESIDENT: They are a direct threat to the United States. And I'm going to keep talking about it. It's my job as the president is to tell people the threats we face and what we're doing about it, and what we've done about it is we've strengthened our homeland defenses; we've got new techniques that we use that enable us to better than determine their motives and their plans and plots. We're working with nations around the world to deal with these radicals and extremists. But they're dangerous. And I can't put it any more plainly, they're dangerous. And I can't put it any more plainly to the American people and to them, we will stay on the offense. It's better to fight 'em there than here. And this concept about, "Well, maybe, you know, let us kind of just leave them alone and maybe they'll be all right," is naïve. These people attacked us before we were in Iraq. They viciously attacked us before we were in Iraqi. And they've been attacking ever since. They are a threat to your children, David. And whoever's in that Oval Office better understand it and take measures necessary to protect the American people.

President Bush lays down the smack on our favorite intrepid, completely unbiased, mature and professional member of the Fourth Estate (or is it the Fifth Column?), Mr. David Gregory!!!

“Can you explain why you believe you’re still a credible messenger on the war?”

My answer would have been: “Mainly because the chief protagonist of the opposite viewpoint, i.e., the media, does lack and always has lacked any credibility whatsoever.”

David Gregory is Chris Matthews illegitmate son by Barney Franks bum, who was left on the doorstep of The Old Bolsheviks Home in a urine soaked Wino’s Sack.

I loved the part where he told Gregory that the terrorists are a threat to his children.

I like Rush, but the real question about WWII is not how the German people could let Hitler happen, it’s how could the British and French people let Hitler happen? And now, with Brave Dave and the Drive-By’s (good name for bad garage band) I know how it happened then and is happening now. The MSM/entertainment complex is covering for the islamofascists, just as they did for Hitler.

” ... and what we’ve done about it is we’ve strengthened our homeland defenses; “

Oh really? And that southern border... it being wide open is a defensive posture?

I think the French pushed Germany to the brink and made a leader like Hitler possible. (re: Treaty of Versailles)

I agree with that. I asked myself the same questions for years until I watched as my fellow Americans fell victim to propaganda. Underestimating the power of the media is a fools game. In this country of ours 33% of Americans, according to most polls, believe that Bush blew up the WTC. And we wonder why the French, English and Germans acquieseced while Hitler murdered millions of Jews.

Davy Boy keeps forgetting that he’s nothing more than a reporter.

And a mediocre one at that.

In his addled brain, I guess he envisions himself as a leading figure in American politics.

He doesn’t realize that he’s just an uneducated ignoramus who stinkifies a room with fart gas every time he opens his pie hole. I wonder if he knows that he's viewed as nothing more than a bad joke?

In my opinion David Gregory anti-American pro terrorist piece of scum. But then all Democrats of the left are the same so who cares. Al-Qaeda will do the same to them as they will do to us except we expect it and people like this piece of scum think al-Qaeda will bow down to them.

The question that bugged me was from a woman reporter. I can’t remember the question, but she ended with the question with the statement, “You can begin your answer with a yes or no.” I could have slapped her right through the radio. How absolutely arrogant.

Now you’re confusing him with Helen Thomas!

Does this mean his inside espionage agents were not privy to this information?

Why should we believe the MSM when THEY leak information on National Security?

The MSM LIES (fake but accurate). They knew that Bill Clinton LIED and never pressed him on his authority to speak to the American public after being exposed as a LIAR.

The partisan press is the enemedia. They support a shadow government within our own Constitutional government. One that seeks to thwart the elected administration’s policies, not by checks and balances but by illegal disclosure and sabotage.

Since the Iraq Study Group, 911 Commission and Senate Select Intelligence Committee all went off old intelligence and rarely took into account any new info from the Harmony database or Docex Project I find that question from Gregory highly incompetent for a mainstream journalist.

But then again the only way for the Mainstream media to help their Democrat friends is to be incompetent.

Commie scum like Pete Seegar protested the American government NOT to go to war against Hitler’s Nazi Germany, that is until after Hitler betrayed his beloved mass-murderer, Joseph Stalin.

It wasn’t until after this date that Woody Gutherie took a “stand” against Fascism (as per his newly painted slogan “this machine kills fascists” on his guitar).

I thought Helen gave birth to Dave during a press conference with Ronald Reagan!

Am I wrong?

The socialists will rejoice when Al Qaida comes a knocking. The only way to tear down the system in the USA is through revolution. The seeds of which they have sowed for nearly 100 years.

They need chaos to junk our Constitional form of government.

If they gave a “Dumbass of the Week” award, Gregory would win 52 awards a year.
